Regardless of scientist's personal views on the subject, public institutions highly favor evolution in the name of pure science, and disfavor Intelligent Design due to its religious implications.  If it is any sort of rule it is a philosophical one, not a scientific one. But is it a fair and a reasonable one? And is it truly scientific?  With support from philosopher Thomas Nagel, I argue that it is not.  The prevailing institutional science of origins has unfairly “ruled out” a priori all possible causes that are not strictly naturalistic (i.e. mindless and purposeless) as pseudo-science.  Not even false per se, just disallowed.  This discussion will give special attention to the notion of irreducible complexity that Dr. Michael Behe develops in his book, "Darwin's Black Box".

The Christmas Story as it Occurs in the New Testament (Injeel)

A Scripture Reading of All the Events Related to Christmas in the Gospels

by Marc Bayne

The events of Christmas exist in a popularized form (manger with wise men, angels, and shepherds all at once) and are even lost in a secular form. The following 5 pages are all of the events in the Bible related to the birth of Christ. It can be read or it is also highlighted so it can be broken into a play with 15 characters.

Download the pdf documents to print them. A great idea is for kids to act out the entire ACTUAL Christmas narrative.

Enjoy!
